Not as magical as the N64 version on a massive tv screen, but still awesome
11 October 2014
Summary: This game is a super fun game that revolutionalized 3D gaming back in the day. The original N64 version is a far superior version(the television brings out the massive environment and characters) but this DS game does an excellent job replicating it. The multiplayer option takes this game in new and fun ways to play.
The one game I can play over and over no matter how many times I play it!

Summary: Great game based on the original classic on the Nintendo 64. I love the new levels added to the game as well as the new list of characters we can use. I highly recommend this game for any Mario fans or people who love classic games in particular.
Summary: "Hey, we've got a new portable system releasing in the fall of '04, but we don't have time to come up with a new, hot title for it.. What are we gonna do, Mr. Miyamoto? ..."Let's port Mario 64! We'll jus add a few levels, bells, stars, and whistles, some minigames, and touch controls, and it will sell millions!" --Overheard and translated from Nintendo of Japan LTD.
Summary: You can tell right from the box art that this game is not exactly what you want. Wario, Luigi, and Yoshi were not in the original game. This is NOT just Super Mario 64 ported to the DS; Nintendo tried to change the game significantly. The original levels are all still here; however, many of the stars have either been modified or changed altogether. Each character has different abilities and gets different things from ability hats.
